Republican Debate: Ted Cruz vs. Media Trust Issues
Cruz Burns CNBC Moderators: This is Why Americans Don’t Trust the Media
Ted Cruz’ Photographic Memory
RUSH: The word for it is “eidetic,” a photographic memory, an eidetic memory. It’s e-i-d-e-t-i-c. There no question Ted Cruz has one.
He’s able to recite the questions that were asked. Note how unique that is, in people’s minds, to have a memory like that. And he does have a great memory. He’s got almost a photographic memory. There’s term for the kind of memory he has, be able to remember things like that. But I’m stunned at all of the observations made. “Yeah, man! Look, he was able to speak without notes,” as though it’s some big feat.
“Let me say something at the outset,” Cruz began. “The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media.”
The audience applauded and Cruz continued:
“This is not a cage match. And you look at the questions – ‘Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain?’ ‘Ben Carson, can you do math?’ ‘John Kasich, will you insult two people over here?’ ‘Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign?’ ‘Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen?’ How about talking about the substantive issues people care about?”
The room erupted in cheers.
